AKB Meerschaum: Carved Bent Billiard (with Case)
Product Number: 002-574-0112
I am a huge fan of meerschaum as a pipe material. As someone who is rebuilding a collection, they are invaluable as "rotation-stretchers", and their taste neutrality is a fine plus. Please notice, however, I specifically referred to the material. Much like briar, a fine smoking medium doesn't always equate with something that I would be want to be seen with. With the fine carving of AKB, I am always proud to be seen with their meerschaums, and this bent Billiard is a fine example of the skill of their artisans. Ensconced in a flower and leaf motif, are three, superbly carved eagles, set in relief. AKB... how great meerschaums should be.
